Enhance Milk Quality
The robotic cooling solution is becoming a staple system on robot dairies across the globe. At Paul Mueller Company we have perfected this system to enhance the quality of your milk, while ensuring longevity in all Mueller cooling and storage equipment.
Milk Cooler + Buffer Tank
Here's how it works—a single milk cooler and milk buffer tank is utilized. Milk is pumped into the buffer tank during the 60+ minutes it takes to pick up the milk and clean a milk cooler. As a quality enhancement measure, during this period, the robot milk is instantly cooled to 36 degrees. This cooling is done in an Accu-Therm® plate cooler with well water and chilled glycol water prior to entering the buffer tank. This ensures cold and quality milk in the buffer tank. Buffer tanks do not typically have cooling capabilities making instant cooling down to 36 degrees more important. This system does not require additional refrigeration. We are simply moving a portion of the cooling horse power from the milk cooler to the Accu-Therm plate cooler. If the milk cooler is not being picked up by the milk hauler and if the milk cooler is not washing, the 36 degree milk will be directed into the milk cooler where maintenance cooling will keep the product at the desired temperature. These simple but effect systems have become the standard as the robotic cooling solution.
Built for Expansion
As dairy producers think long-term about future growth, you will likely see more robotic dairies worldwide. Robotic dairies allow dairy producer more time for things they are passionate about: herd health, milk quality, and genetics to name a few. This way of life also promotes flexibility in a dairy producer's daily operations. This also means more quality time with family and friends. At Paul Mueller Company we are here to support your efforts with the most efficient storage and cooling equipment available. When designing a robotic dairy farm request to review the right robotic cooling solution with your local milk cooling representative.
